Contemporary (twentieth century) Muslim exegetes and interpreters have taken the classical materials of scripture and tradition and recast them in the light of modern understanding. In this chapter, the events proposed by classical writers to pertain to the period between death and resurrection are reexamined and either rejected or accepted, sometimes with new twists. Modern science and new theories of psychology are drawn on as they consider the state of the soul after death. Particular attention is given to contemporary Muslim spiritualist interpretations.

Keywords:   accountability, death, materialization, modernist, retribution, sleep, spiritualism, traditionalist
